At present, the Department of Electrical Engineering is offering BSc and MSc degree programs since Fall 2012 and fall 2020, respectively while Ph.D. programs will be started soon.
This versatile degree program opens careers in different areas of Electrical Engineering, a top rated profession. The degree program promises the graduates higher level employability at the entry level as compared to other engineering programs. The department prides itself on the fact that most of its graduates are employed within the first year of graduation. There are a number of pathways to choose from power sector, leading telecom industries, atomic energy, WAPDA & NTDC, R&D organizations, industrial process and control, power system automation & control, satellite and space technologies. Our engineers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to help them develop quality system solution within schedule and cost constraints.
Alumni have also enjoyed a number of scholarship opportunities for higher studies in the reputed foreign universities and some of them are playing key role in industries.
Research wings of the department are well recognized and serve as the backbone of the rapidly growing electrical industry. Progress of humanity is fueled by each new discovery and development. The full time dedicated Ph.D. faculty are actively pursuing research in areas like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cognitive Radios, Mobile Computing, Signal Processing, Nano-technology, Solar Energy Harvesting, Pump Hydro Storage, as well as Smart Grids and Renewable Energies.
Field Visits and Practical Trainings
In parallel to the challenging curricula and content of our degree program, the students are provided opportunities for exposure of the latest technology usage in the field. Our graduates have the ability to put theory into practice. For the purpose student tours to the relevant industries are regularly being arranged. Moreover, the department has strong industrial linkages and therefore internships are arranged for the students during summer vacations.
There are nine (09) dedicated state of the art Laboratories that are mostly foreign imported and assembled. For smooth functioning, Laboratories are backed up with 200kVA powerful generator. In addition, department has state of the art Power Lab that is extensively being utilized for research in power sector. This single lab covers power generation, transmission, utilization, protection, generator control, transformers, smart grid, renewable energies (fuel cell, solar, wind), and integrated system of all these sources. List of the available laboratories are:
